MANGALURU: The Sixth Additional District and Sessions Court convicted the serial killer Cyanide Mohan in a murder case of a 28-year-old woman of Maladi of Meginamane in Bantwal Taluk. It is the fifth case of conviction among 20 murder cases filed against him. 

The case 
Cyanide Mohan had first contacted the victim at Madanthyar bus stand and introduced himself as Shashidhar Poojary and obtained her mobile phone number. Later he befriended with her and promised of marrying her. He asked her to come to BC Road Bus stand and took her to Hassan on September 24, 2009. Both stayed at ‘Ganesh Lodge’ in Hassan and had sexual intercourse. 

The next day, Mohan asked her to remove all her gold ornaments, saying that they need to offer pooja in a nearby temple. Instead of going to the temple, he took her to Hassan bus stand. Later, on the pretext of providing her with a pill to prevent pregnancy, he made her  consume cyanide at women’s toilet in Hassan bus stand. After confirming the victim’s death, he returned to Ganesh lodge and made away with her gold ornaments. Later, he sold those gold ornaments to a jewellery merchant in city. 

Puttur Additional Superintendent of Police Chandragupta and his team arrested the accused on September 21, 2010 and filed a charge-sheet at the court. When the case came to hearing at Sixth Additional and Sessions Court on February 23, Judge D T Puttarangawamy upheld the arguments of Public Prosecutor Judith O M Crasta and convicted the accused. Before the conviction, the judge examined 39 witnesses, 43 documents and 48 material objects. The quantum of the punishment will be announced today (February 24).
